* BlackGuyDiesFirst: Has been mocked and parodied over the years but ''still'' tends to pop up in works unironically (if only for the logical reason that (A) there's a black guy in the cast and (B) ''somebody'' has to die for the plot to advance).

* AWinnerIsYou: Most endings of classic games from NES/SNES era were extremely simplistic. as time went by, the endings became more developed and even games with {{Excuse Plot}}s started having elaborate endings, but even in the modern generations, there are still {{Shovelware}} games that have endings in the same vein as 8-bit games, even blockbuster games sometimes have it, some games with MultipleEndings have this as EasyModeMockery.

Added DiffLines:
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Pretty much in any comedy that started after 1992 has this happening to husband by their wife. There has been backlash to this DoubleStandard, the father getting abused or pushed around is okay, but the mother getting treated like that would create accusations of misogynistic undertones, but still not enough to stop using the trope altogether.

Added DiffLines:
* AnimatedMusical: Animation and music have always been closely related since TheSilentAgeOfAnimation, with both mediums relying on timing and thus perfect compliments to each other. Because of this, it remains a NecessaryWeasel in [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney films]] and other family-oriented animation even as it's mocked elsewhere.

* MilesGloriosus: Subverted for centuries, but still readers will expect the braggart is a coward, and be surprised if it's subverted, and accept it if it's played straight.

Added DiffLines:
* AsYouKnow: {{Homer}} used it in the ''Iliad''. Creator/{{Aristophanes}} broke the fourth wall to mock his own use of this trope. More than two millennia later, characters still lecture each other about things the others know.

* RealIsBrown: Still used quite a bit during the 7th Generation (Xbox 360 + PSŁ), but good games are subverting it more and more due to the rise of real time Global Illumination, among other technologies. The 8th Generation is only seeing its use decrease further with the extra computational power present.

See the Discussion page.
* {{Fanservice}}: Despite what modern sensibilities would indicate or expect, this trope persists.

* DumbBlond: Not much excuse for this one but it is certainly still around.

* BeYourself: Keeps popping up in kids' shows even though older viewers might find it trite.

* BeYourself: Keeps popping up in kids' shows even though older viewers might find it trite. Never mind the dubious assumption that every child (or even every adult!) has a strong and fully-developed, static sense of self which is independent of their family and their peers. "Being yourself" would be a lot easier if it weren't a difficult-to-discover moving target -- but this aspect is rarely addressed.
